I downloaded my copy of The Book Of Abisan after having been pointed towards it on Twitter. A feminist fantasy novel of witches, magic and multiple realities, it isn't my preferred genre, but overall I enjoyed the read.

The Book Of Abisan is a volume of prophecy, carried and studied by a witch, Yfrey, who is trying to rid her world of an oppressive dictator, Calim. Calim is a charismatic man, but one without any magic of his own and he is determined to rid that same world of all its magical beings, leaving himself all powerful. Clepitt's book is a fast action-packed ride - a complete contrast to my previous read, Kent Haruf's Benediction! There is some attempt at rounding out the two main characters, Yfrey and a human woman named Jacques, but otherwise everyone is pretty two-dimensional with the novel's emphasis put on doing rather than being. I thought several scenes were too rushed and would have liked a lot more in the way of description to help me understand what was going on and why, especially once the reality hopping starts. I wanted to know more about the different realities! If that was done I would say that there could be enough plot here for two exciting novels. However, overall this is an easy escapist read and I liked the drawings at the start of each Part.

Feeling a bit down? need some fun? Read the Book of Abisan to feel uplifted and powerful again! Written in a clear, and charmingly witty style, this is the tale of how two women (Evie and Jacques) claim their magical powers and defeat the Inquisitor and the evil Calim and his army. I felt drawn into the narrative immediately and traveled with the characters between different realities -- ours, and the magical worlds. I am looking forward to reading other books by C. H. Clepitt.

I really enjoyed this book. it spans three world's including our own and had me hooked straight from the start. the story follows yfrey and Jacques who are from different worlds. Jacques is from ours and yffrey is from a world ruled by a tyrant where magic exists, and together they must help save her world. i found the story really engaging and didn't want to put it down. overall I loved it and would recommend it to any fantasy and magic lovers.

I'm a fan of this book. It moves between the past and the present to tell the story of two feisty and rebellious women, Yfrey and Jacques, witches who must defeat a wicked inquisitor and his minions in order to stay alive. The story will appeal to anyone who likes fantasy fiction with a touch of the supernatural, and to those who enjoy lots of action, taut plots and fully realised female characters. I would especially recommend the book to young adults who want a fun and gripping read that will also make them think. It's the kind of book you'll find hard to put down once you start reading and would make an excellent film.

I came to this book, in all honesty, not expecting to enjoy it, but I was wrong. It moves along at a decent pace, there is action, but not at the expense of character development, and it made me want to know what happened at the end, which is all I could want in a book.
